I will be - even though it is my wedding anniversary I have leave to escape...
I have set up two blogs:
http://wwmm.ch.cam.ac.uk/blogs/murrayrust/ which deals with a wide
range of topics including this forum. I may blog some of Thursday's
meeting. I am particularly excited by placeopedia as it seems to
epitomise what we are doing. Blog topics will include XML in science,
virtual communities, open knowledge and why scientists need to know
how to program
http://wwmm.ch.cam.ac.uk/blogs/cml/ is dedicated to Chemical Markup Language
I am talking at the American Chemical Society in 8 days time. This
will cover both technology and politics. Some of you may have seen
Peter Suber's Open Access post about the silly statement by the Royal
Soc Chemistry that Open Access publishing is "ethically
"Royal Society of Chemistry lashes out"). You can argue that OA is
stupid, cost ineffective, disruptive, etc. but NOT ethically flawed.
Oh dear. I shall probably blog this today

Indeed. Thanks and your blog is linked. I am hoping to create a
chemical RSS feed from current journals to show at the ACS meeting.
In principle this announces to commercial secondary aggregators that
their days are limited.
